draft - Pours pale gold and smells of green apples. Itís bubbly and sweet. Itís light, refreshing, and pretty much the average cider one might expect.

Muggus69 (1232) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2010
330ml bottle. Lively pale gold body, medium bead, not head. Good clarity. Minimal aroma; apple skin, caster sugar, bit of farty S02. Quite thin body, moderately high carbonation, subdued acid, short palate. Flavour similiar to the nose, not a great deal happening. Light apple flavours, some sweetness, almost seems a bit artificial. Clean finish, refreshingly dry. Very drinkable, non-offensive cider. If youíre looking for flavour and texture, look elsewhere.

Clear medium orange color with virtually none head. Aroma is apple, kandi sugar, barnyard and wood notes. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet with a average duration, and a dry finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. (It is very much like a faro) (150608)

harrisoni (13897) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2010 440ml can from M&S. That it has come to this? Buying 11 new rates from M&S in Liverpool just because they are cheap?? Yes, well there you go when you have unimaginative supermarket beer buyers. Clear gold, no head. Some boiled apple on the aroma. Some commercial cider flavour. Itís not horrid, but I am just so disappointed by this. Itís fine, not too sweet, some dryness, but it just doesnít go anywhere. but fine. Re-rate its not that bad. Drinkable decent fruit flavour not to sweet. Fine

Ungstrup (29528) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2010
Can. A light golden cider with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of apples - and not much more. The flavor is sweet with notes of apples as well as a bit of acid, leading to a lightly tart finish.
Earlier Rating: 7/26/2005 Total Score: 2.9
A yellow beer with a fast disappearing head. Both the aroma and the flavor are sweet and dominated by apples, the end is dry. An OK cider.

MiP (13676) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2010
Can, 4.5%. Almost no aroma. Clear pale yellow colour. The flavour is very subtle. Watery flavour, tastes like cider with a lot of water. I wonder how they kept the ABV so high with so little flavour.
Earlier Rating: 6/10/2005 Total Score: 3
Draught. Clear yellow colour. Nice and sweet, very slightly acidic apple flavour. Not the worst cider I have had.

Papsoe (25084) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2010
Can 44 cl. Clear yellow with a dissipating white head. Very discreet appley aroma. Light body, dominated by citric acid while the apples are subdued and only a vague memory. Ends almost sour. Poor excuse for a cider. 190210

(Bottle 33 cl) Clear golden with a rough white head. Fresh, acidic apple aroma. Medium body with sweet apple notes and a light acidity in the finish. Very drinkable. 040408

[On tap at Sweeney & Toddís, Reading] My cider-drinking friends rave about this stuff, so I thought Iíd give it a go. It pours pale gold and fizzy, with a small rapidly dissipating white head. Fortunately the fizz is less aggressive on the mouth than the eye. Taste is rather sour/vinegary, with some slight metallic notes, but itís definitely more drinkable than most of its mass-market rivals - itís quite dry, light and refreshing in fact. So, not a total write-off, but still nothing to write home about.
